This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of Sector Specific Agency designation for Critical Manufacturing.
This notice informs the public that the Secretary, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has designated the DHS Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP) as the Sector-Specific Agency (SSA) for the Critical Manufacturing Sector under the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). IP will now move forward with the organization and coordination processes identified in the NIPP for establishing a new critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) sector. These initial steps will include establishing Government and Sector Coordinating Councils, which will begin the process of full integration into the CIKR Sector Partnership, implementation of the NIPP Risk Management Framework and development of the Critical Manufacturing Sector Specific Plan.
This designation also includes language changes to the NIPP identifying the new sector, which will take affect immediately and remain in effect until the NIPP is rewritten and published in 2009. These changes will include adding the Critical Manufacturing sector and its SSA to those sections of the NIPP where sectors and their SSAs are listed, referenced, or described, and amending the last sentence of the definition of “Sector” in the Glossary to read, “The NIPP addresses the 17 CIKR sectors enumerated in HSPD-7 and any additional sectors created by the Secretary of Homeland Security pursuant to HSPD-7.”Start Further Info
